Abstract

Although the Interventive Psychodiagnosis has been revealing itself as a promising practice, there are few systematic studies about its reaches and limitations. In this sense, this research investigated, in eight children, if the success or failure in this method could be linked to the personality structure and the conditions of the functions of the ego. For that, the subjects were submitted to a classical application of the Rorschach Technique and after that, they were guided to the Interventive Psychodiagnosis, which was accomplished through ludic sessions, family interview, Hammer Battery and CAT-A. The cases' follow up indicated, regarding to the symptoms amelioration, five success, two failures and one discontinuation. The Rorschach Technique showed out that the well succeeded children presented neurotic personality structure, and lack of severe handicaps in the Control of the Pulsions and in the Personal Relationships. Therefore, these could be criteria for indicating this treatment, although the contraindications are not clear, due to the good results reached by Winnicott with psychotic children in the similar procedure of Therapeutic Consultation.
